critical patients at his hospital alone. dr. sanjay gupta joining me now. what stands out to you? >> everyone has been talking about these lower limb injuries. this idea that there was a significant explosive force, but that it stayed close to the ground i think that keeps getting proven as we hear more and more descriptions. dr. fagan said he performed six operations himself. he said there were several amputations performed at his hospital, which is tough to think about in the context of this running event. he described the injuries to the legs as being boney, but also involving a lot of the soft tissue and vascular, meaning blood vessels being affected. the blood vessel injuries tend to be the most critical, because someone could be losing blood and blood blow to the limb. so those have to be addressed quickly. i'm sure that triage is ongoing. >> sanjay, take a look at this video. what stands out when you see this video from a medical standpoint? >> when you watch that you see the explosion certainly happen, but look at obviously one runner falls, who may have just stumbled or

? once again, we have new information from dr. sanjay gupta when we come back. >> reporter: it is no exaggeration as all to say that treating the boston bombing victims has been a matter of life or death for dozens of doctors, nurses and other medical workers here in boston. dr. vivikshaw was actually running in the boston marathon yesterday. he finished the race, immediately before those bombs went off, and what did he do immediately after that? he looked to see if the people around him were okay. he joins me right now here not more than two blocks from where the bombings happened. dr. shaw, tell me what that was like yesterday. >> i think initially myself and all the other runners weren't sure whether it was a firework gone bad or something that was supposed to happen. then after the second explosion went off, we knew something was wrong because all the spectators and fans started running away from us. we were just about to finish. so i -- my whole family was on that side where the explosion had gone off so i start running towards where the bombs had gone off to check on

thing to say. dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. sanjay, why did heather have to make this decision, and i know also that it was really her decision, right, not necessarily the doctor? >> that's right. typically, it is the patient's decision. i mean, look, there's going to be some situations where it's just a clear-cut decision, where it will be clear that the leg cannot be saved. on the other side of things, it's going to be very clear the operations are going to save the leg. what typically happens is you do all the things to restore the bone, stabilize the bone, repair the arteries and nerves, and then you sort of see how is the patient doing, and sometimes the leg just does not regain that function. sometimes there's just -- it becomes such a source of pain that it sort of creates the decision again, but to your question, it is the patient's decision ultimately. erin, this is how her doctor put it. >> it's very, very rare that the doctor makes the decision. we do everything to let the patient come to their own decision on this, because values for every separate patient are different, a

. some of the medical concerns. let's take a listen now to dr. sanjay gupta who was talking about this a little bit earlier. >> you think about very combustible chemicals like amoan ya nitrate. this is always a concern. besides the blast injury itself, which sounds like it was pretty significant, someone a couple miles away felt the impact of this. >> also, this chemical itself, i think one of the people said that the guards are wearing respirators. >> yeah, that would not surprise me just because the air in that area is probably going to quickly become of concern when we have these sorts of chemic s chemicals, both explosive and now being released in the area in great quantities. so we've seen this in the past. frankly, with regard to what's happening in boston, with those same sorts of injuries, you have to be concerned about here, as well. >> fertilizer is used in explosive devices. you can understand why it's so flammable. >> yeah , we talked about ammona nitrate. one of its primary uses is exploezive. >> we're talking a little bit about where it's located. we're talking one
'm going to be able to live my life in a normal way. >> dr. sanjay gupta joins me now. why did heather have to make this decision. i know it was her decision, not necessarily the doctor. >> typically, it is the patient's decision. there's going to be some situations where it's just a clear cut decision. it's going to be clear that the leg cannot be saved. or on the other side of things, it's clear that the operations are going to save the leg. what typically happens is you do all the things to restore the bone, stabilize the bone, repair the arteries and nerves. and then you sort of see how is the patient doing? and sometimes the leg just does not regain that function. sometimes it becomes a source of pain. but it is the patient's decision, ultimately. erin, this is how her doctor put it. >> it's very, very rare that the doctor makes the decision. we do everything to let the patient come to their own decision. because values for every separate patient are different. and keeping a limb may be very important to one while, for someone else, i think like heather, function is paramount. >> it's

. sanjay gupta. sanjay, what do you make of the story they were just telling chris, the kinds of injuries that they saw? >> these are unusual injuries in a civilian setting. but you heard from one of the nurses that said he had spent some time in iraq and had that experience which probably helped him. when you're in a sitting like this, you're expecting one type of patient, possibly patients dehydrated, maybe somebody who has cardiac problems. but this is a completely different scenario. what it was bolstered by is you had a lot of ambulances and ems there who do have supplies, but also the ability to take the most critically wounded out of there as quickly as possible. so it was a combination of things. >> just hearing what happened that moment by moment. sanjay, one of the surgeons at massachusetts general, which is where i believe 29 people are, 8 in critical condition tonight, we don't know if they're all going to make it. we're hoping they are, but it's minute by minute. the trauma surgeon said several patients will require serial operations over the coming days. some of these people
correspondent for cnn dr. sanjay gupta is live in west texas. sanjay, thanks so much and good to see you. the national guard is monitoring the air quality around the blast area. what could happen to people who breathe in this chemical and hydrous ammonia? >> this is a very interesting, potentially dangerous chemical, a nitrogen fertilizer, jake. let me just tell you it's stored at high pressure and that is relevant because if it comes out of a tank, it can -- it's lighter than air, typically. in conditions like this, though, it can stay closer to the ground and cause what's known as an ammonia fog. if it touches your skin it immediately dehydrates your skin to the point where you can suffer burns. you heard probably, jake, the initial rescue efforts people had to wear respirators. if you breathe this in it can be quite damaging to your upper airway and lungs. that was the big concern obviously for the people in the area but also the first responders. i will tell you, jake, the state epa has been conducting air quality exams pretty regularly and so far the news seems to be good with regar

to the triage center. i'm here with sanjay gupta. this is develop, we don't know how severe these injuries are. we don't know if people are dead. but you do know about these kinds of injuries. >> and we hear about fertilizer plants in particular, being a concern. some of the concerns are the same concerns you would see in any particular explosion. the sorts of blast injuries we've been talking about here in boston. the fertilizer themselves pose a particular risk. some of the fertilizers can be explosive. something known as ammonium nitrate. we're hearing reports that one of these tanks. they say a second tank has not exploded. but the first tank was quite explosive, not only leading to the blast, but the fumes that could make rescue efforts dangerous. if there's any good news in all that, the long term impact on the fumes was not significant. so who knows right now, we don't know all the various chemicals. just about every chemical you can think of is in a fertilizer plan the like this. >> we have to hope that those that are not seriously injured, they have hope for what what happened before.
investigative correspondent, drew griffin joins us and medical correspondent, dr. sanjay gupta is with me and senior legal analyst, jeffrey toobin. what's the latest on the investigation? >> i mean, they laid it out pretty well in the criminal complaint. the criminal complaint against this one surviving suspect. but overall, there is a national security investigation under way to answer that one question we all want to know. is this it. are these just the two guys involved or is there somebody else. right now, there is nothing to indicate that there was anybody else involved but you have to be 100% sure. so they're going to go through everything they purchased, everybody they contacted, every phone call they made, to make sure nobody was involved or even unwittingly involved in aiding these kids. >> jeff, in terms of the legal case, i want to read a portion from the transcript of the hearing in the hospital room today, the subject's hospital room. the judge said quote, at this time, the conclusion of the initial appearance, i find that the defendant is alert, mentally competent and lucid,
and afghanistan. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta takes a look at how learning to walk again with a prosthetic. >> it takes time. about six weeks post-surgery for a new amputee to take this first step. one of the most important things is that this wound around the amputation have to heal completely. this incision line you see over here. after that is done, they actually have to shape the remaining area of the leg. and then actually put something onto sort of shrink those tissues so that the prosthetic can go on. every patient that suffers an amputation goes through tailored therapy to learn how to use their new limb. peter lost his leg due to complications from diabetes has had his prosthetic leg less than two weeks. signs of progress can be small sometimes, but no hands. he was using one hand earlier. two hands before that. let me show you something else if you come around and take a look. when you actually look specifically at what's happening with his feet over here, he's stepping up with his good leg over here. but look what's happening with the prosthetic. you get this s
